Bottle @ home. I’ve had this beer (and loved it) in cask several times, but not had a bottle in years. It had a much sweeter milk-chocolate nose than I was expecting, and did have a full, silky mouthfeel, but disappointingly less coffee than I remember it having. As it came into contact with the air more aroma was released, but it still didn’t give the depth of flavour I thought I’d experienced in it previously.

Served in a Teku glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours very dark opaque brown colour with a thick beige head, nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is coffee, molasses, earth. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, slightly bitter pleasant aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very very nice coffee infused dark beer! I will be seeking more of it without doubt!

Bottle shared. Thanks Shuichi! Big and bold espresso and roasted coffee notes up front and dominate throughout, but a bit of dark chocolate as it warms. Light body and easy drinking, really tastes like a coffee at room temperature and the mouthfeel is really nice. Finish is roasty but clean. Amazing for 4.2 percent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an almost black colour with a mocha head, good retention and some creamy lacing. Roasted malt aromas with some nice coffee. The flavours shows more the coffee over the roasted malts with hints of chocolate. Seems watered-down, because of the low alcohol content, but overall, a nice coffee stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5l bottle at home courtesy of Cuso, big thanks. No obvious BB date. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells of coffee, bitter herbs, quite roasty, some bitter chocolate, light licorice, hints of vanilla. nice smell. light to medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, vanilla, light roast, some bitter herbs, coffee grounds, hints of chocolate, light fruit notes. finishes rather watery towards the finish, with some roast and notes of bitter herbs, some licorice and light vanilla notes. decent one, not a fan of vanilla so gets a bit of a penalty for that, but overall enjoyable, finish is a bit watery though. plus points for the low ABV.

Bottle. Nice coffee aroma, sweet malts. Hint of vanilla and cola with a smidge of hops. Quite thin and highly carbonated. Decent enough though.
